The History of our Gordon's Bay:

On old maps dating back to the early days of the Cape Colony, our little bay is variously referred to as “Visser’s Baay” ( 1673), “ de Vishoek” (1676) and “ Combuys” – evidence that it was known as a place where fresh water, fish and game could be found. Subsequently it was also called Vishoek, Vissershoek and Fish Hoek. We don’t know exactly when the name Gordon’s Bay was finally settled upon, but we do know that the name Gordon commemorates Robert Jacob Gordon, the Commandant of the Dutch troops at the Cape from 1777 – 1795. He was a remarkable man with an inquiring mind and wide interests.

Although of Scottish descent, Robert Gordon’s allegiance was with the Netherlands. He joined the Dutch Light Dragoons as a cadet in 1753 and enrolled at the University of Harderwijkin 1759, where he studied in the humanities and proved to be of exceptional intelligence and diverse interests. He joined the Dutch East India Company, rising quickly to the rank of Colonel and commanding the Cape garrison.
He went on more expeditions than any other 18th century explorer of southern Africa and kept journals and sketch books to record his travels. He was responsible for naming the Orange River, introducing Merino sheep to theCapeColony and for discovering the remains of Bartholomeu Dias’s cross at Kwaaihoek in 1786. Fluent in French, Dutch and English, Robert Gordon also spoke Hottentot and Xhosa!
Robert Gordon’s first trip into the interior( 1773 – 1774) was on foot, to explore the mountains between Cape Town and False Bay and it was then that he visited our little bay and left his name with us – a worthy namesake indeed!
